Attempting backtrace. You can use the following information to find out
where mysqld died. If you see no messages after this, something went
terribly wrong...
Cannot determine thread, fp=0x4550e044, backtrace may not be correct.
Stack range sanity check OK, backtrace follows:

Please read http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/using-stack-trace.html and follow instructions on how to resolve the stack trace. Resolved
stack trace is much more helpful in diagnosing the problem, so please do 
resolve it
Trying to get some variables.
Some pointers may be invalid and cause the dump to abort...
thd->query at 0x8b11180 = select f1() as a from t1 group by a
The manual page at http://www.mysql.com/doc/en/Crashing.html contains
information that should help you find out what is causing the crash.

How to repeat:
drop table if exists t1;
create table t1(id int)engine=myisam;
insert into t1 values (),();
drop function if exists f1;
create function f1() returns int return 1;
select f1() as a from t1 group by a;

Workaround: use DETERMINISTIC clause

Marking as a showstopper for 5.0.50 based on my conversation with Kostja
[14 Sep 2007 23:13] Jeffrey Pugh
As above, introduced by http://bugs.mysql.com/29338; thus introduced in 5.0.48, 5.1.21 back-ported to 5.0.44sp1.

Plan to fix in 5.1.23 and 5.0.50.

This crash has nothing to do with the patch for bug #29338.
I reverted this patch and still had the same kind of crash in the same spot.
Reverting the patch partly as Konstantin did does not have any sense as in this case the function is considered as deterministic and no field is created for its result in the temporary table. Meanwhile the crash occurs when this field is created (defined).

So this is absolutely a new bug and I remove the regression tag from it.
[15 Sep 2007 7:35] Konstantin Osipov
Igor is correct that the bug was originally introduced not by 29338 but by 27354, which 29338 supersedes.
[26 Sep 2007 19:26] Axel Schwenke
There is duplicate bug #31191

According to the reporter the workaround with DETERMINISTIC does not work for 5.0.45-community-nt (where bug #31191 was spotted first).
[27 Sep 2007 21:25] Jeffrey Pugh
Not a regression; removing Showstopper. Should still be fixed for 5.0.50, and next 5.1.
[28 Sep 2007 9:34] Hartmut Holzgraefe
Also reported as bug #31226, and as it only started to happen with 5.0.42 i'd like to question the "not a regression" claim ... as bug #27354 mentioned above was fixed in 5.0.42 it indeed looks like a likely culprit ...

  Fix for BUG#31035: select from function, group by result crasher.
  This actually, fix for the patch for bug-27354. The problem with
  the patch was that Item_func_sp::used_tables() was updated, but
  Item_func_sp::const_item() was not. So, for Item_func_sp, we had
  the following inconsistency:
    - used_tables() returned RAND_TABLE, which means that the item
      can produce "random" results;
    - but const_item() returned TRUE, which means that the item is
      a constant one.
  The fix is to change Item_func_sp::const_item() behaviour: it must
  return TRUE (an item is a constant one) only if a stored function
  is deterministic and each of its arguments (if any) is a constant
